The hostel is in a great location, next to the tube stop with 5 mins walk of main attractions yet on quiet side street so no noise at nights. The staff are very friendly and speak most languages. There is a luggage room that they allow you to use for early arrivals /late departures. Rooms are clean and modern but... More

Overall this hostel was great- it was more like a hotel, we had our own kettle in our room, we had comfortable clean bedrooms and linen, breckfast was nice- lovely crusty bread (mmmm), and the location was great- 10/15 min walk from anywhere really. The only downsides was that the walls of the rooms are a bit thin and we... More

This place is all about location. it is just a few minutes walk from important sites in the city. A metro station is also around the corner and the staff are very helpful. If you need to get somewhere, they will help. There is also a bar in here and a supermarket called Ullrich right around the corner which I... More

The cost of the twin room was very reasonable as included buffet breakfast with hot rolls and boiled eggs, fruit, cheese, cereals etc. The location is right in the centre of Mitte district and with a Berlin Card travel pass makes getting around really easy. The staff were all young and friendly and for an old retired backpacker like myself... More

The place was good value, rooms were clean and we had an ensuite bathroom. The bathroom was rather dated and the sink taps dribbled, filled my water bottle from the shower! The rooms however were rather hot (it was 28'c outside at midnight) and with no a/c or fan it was hard to sleep. Consequently had the window wide open... More

The rooms smelled really bad, felt like the air was not moving at all. The promised wi-fi did not work at all and even though we discussed this with the personnel they could not get it working and tried to offer us an internet connection that had to be payed. The check out was very early. There was, however, a... More
